have been working with and restoring movie projectors for more than 50 years.
All projectors are Fully
inspected, adjusted, lubricated, parts replaced and repaired as necessary to
restore to factory new running condition. Condition mentioned in the
description is cosmetic condition. All are guaranteed clean and in perfect like new
running condition with a good bulb and one take-up reel. All are 400' reel
capacity unless noted. Excellent for showing your films or to transfer them to
video (using your video camera to capture the projected image *). Every
projector will come with an 8mm sample film, one 400' take-up reel, good bulb and
instruction book. A number in ( ) brackets indicates if I have more than one of
* Most of the
projectors here are excellent to use for transferring film to video, but none
have the capability of transferring the image to video through a line output.
You must use a video camera to take a picture of the projected image if you plan
to use the projector for video transfer. I do not take in repair jobs.I just service
the projectors I refurbish and sell myself.

IMPORTANT NOTE - RETURN POLICY:
All projectors are guaranteed to be as described and running perfectly for a
full 60 days after delivery date, or I will repair it or replace it for another

STANDARD 8MM SOUND
There were few Magnetic Sound Standard 8mm Projector models made and
it is more than rare to find one in proper working condition. In my opinion,
Eumig was the best one made and is ideal for showing all your silent or
sound 8mm films. It had the brightest image in 8mm projectors at the time,
and has an excellent tube amplifier. It was made from about 1962 to 1968.
MAGNETIC SOUND PROJECTOR
- (2) This is the best performing regular
8mm sound projector made. In many ways I consider this
model superior to the later Eumig super and dual-8
models. Beautiful condition and meticulously
refurbished (totally rebuilt) to run and last like
new, including new motor mount bushing supports. This is the late model with
the improved film gate and pressure pad design. Excellent loud sound from
the 3 tube amplifier. Has automatic threading through
the film gate; manual threading through the sound head
to the take-up reel. Shows sound or silent film much
better and safer than the dual-8 models. Has pilot
lights that come on when the projection bulb is off for
easy threading in the dark. Runs in forward and reverse.
Has a variable speed control for speeds from 15 to 25
frames per second. This makes it excellent for
electronic image transfer to the computer or DVD,
without flicker at 20 fps, through a video camera. The
brightest picture available in any 8mm projector using
the inexpensive FCR 12 volt 100 watt bulb and f1.3 zoom
lens. Almost all steel and metal construction. Operates
at 110 to 250 volts, 50 or 60 hertz. Comes with 400' take-up reel,
protective hard plastic cover, instruction book,
spare bulb and commercial sound film.
Excellent+ to Like New cosmetic condition and runs Like New -
MARK-S 709 DUAL-8MM SOUND PROJECTOR
Will Run both 8mm and
Super-8 (Single-8) Sound and Silent Films
is the only manufacturer to make a dual-8 sound projector. This
is the first and best dual-8 model they made with partial manual
threading and high quality tube amplifier for great quality full
sound. It will show both 8mm and super-8 sound and silent films.
Handles both film formats well because of the separate sprockets
and film gates supplied, which are stored neatly inside the
protective cover. You simply switch the parts out when changing
film formats. It has automatic threading through the film gate,
then you manually thread the film through the sound heads to the
take-up reel. This makes it very easy to unthread in the middle
of a reel. Runs in forward or reverse. Has variable speed
settings from 15 to 24 frames per second, 600' reel capacity and
with the f1.3 15 to 30mm zoom lens and inexpensive, 50 hour
life, FCR 12 volt 100 watt bulb. Excellent for transferring
films to DVD. Comes with instruction book, spare bulbs and with
a super-8 sound and 8mm sound film so you can test it out right
away. Excellent+ cosmetic condition and performs Like New -
